Daniel Joshua - Iowa and Back Again

Daniel Joshua is a Berkeley undergrad in American History. I ran into him on the BART last week, and he explained his project to me. He's been travelling literally across the country, photographing himself in the sites of famous movies. For Richard Candida Smith's course on progressive-era America, Joshua went to Los Angeles and photographed the old slum districts. The comparisons become commentary on the American landscape, its myths, and change.

Joshua is planning a book on the landscapes of Kevin Costner and the American midwest.

Here: High Fidelity and Ghost.
